Nutella Granola

My Nutella Granola recipe is a delightful mix of homemade nutella, hazelnuts, cacao, and oats. It's a healthy, gluten-free option for breakfast, snacks, or desserts. Roasted hazelnuts and organic cacao powder make this granola a Christmas treat, both nutritious and delicious.

A Granola poem… True story!

The mister and I were sitting having breakfast discussing what we needed for groceries. The idea popped into my head that I wanted to make a granola with hazelnuts. Hazelnuts are such a Christmas nut. And then it hit me, NUTELLA GRANOLA. I think I actually squealed with excitement. How had I not thought of this before?? Well it’s here now and it is sensational. 

Roasting your hazelnuts in your oven will put you in the Christmas spirit. Put your favourite album on and get making both the homemade nutella and the granola!

Making your own nutella will take this granola to a whole new level and really will make it come out the best. My version of nutella uses whole ingredients and in my humble opinion, tastes WAY better than store bought.

I’m super excited to share a recipe that’s going to make your holiday mornings a little more magical.

Only choosing the best ingredients for this recipe!

Homemade Nutella: The star of the show, bringing a creamy, nutty, and chocolaty flavor that’s irresistibly good. Check out my recipe here on how to make it! It’s quick and minimal ingredients. You will be SO GLAD you did it.

Hazelnuts: These nuts are a quintessential holiday ingredient, adding a rich, toasty depth to the granola. They are FILLED with nutritional benefits that I get into on the nutella blog. If you want to know more about how amazing these little fall/winter nuts are go here.

Cacao Powder and Nibs: I used organic nubs and Cocoa Powder from Nativas Organics. Packed with antioxidants, cacao adds a deep chocolate flavour without the added sugar, making the granola both healthy and indulgent. Both are superfoods and are unsweetened.

The Magic of a Homemade Granola

This granola isn’t just a treat; it’s a labor of love. Imagine the aroma of roasting hazelnuts filling your kitchen, instantly putting you in the holiday spirit. Mixing these with oats, seeds, and the superfood powers of cacao, then combining them with the homemade Nutella – it’s a process that’s as enjoyable as it is rewarding. The result is a granola that’s crunchy, chocolaty, nutty, and just perfectly sweetened with maple syrup.

I plan on buying some pretty mason jars from amazon to give this granola to some loved ones during the holidays because I KNOW that it will be well received!

This nutella granola will be the perfect bowlfor breakfast, snacking on it throughout the day, or packaging it in pretty mason jars for a thoughtful homemade gift. It’s a celebration of holiday flavours, made with love and healthy ingredients. So, grab your apron, and let’s get to baking some granola magic!
